About the Author:

Anne Lindbergh, the daughter of Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh and sister of Reeve Lindbergh, grew up in a house filled with books and was encouraged in her writing of stories and poems at an early age. The author of numerous acclaimed novels for young readers, Anne Lindbergh died in 1993. She will long be remembered as, in the words of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, a writer "of literary grace and a mesmerizing storyteller."

Review:

The author, the daughter of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, brings vitality and charm to her descriptions of Washington's parks and pleasures. --New York Times Book Review

A beautifully handled fantasy. --Philadelphia Inquirer

The People in Pineapple Place is about a boy whose life has been turned upside down and the friends he makes who help him settle in. It is also a love story about living in the city, something exceedingly rare in teen fiction, and while decidedly set in 1982 (with a fun foray back to the pre-WWII era), it has a contemporary realistic feel. Nothing terrifying happens in this book, nothing horrifying or disturbing. The divorce is tough, but August learns to voice his feelings and navigate an honest path with his mother who is a wonderful sort of parent who gives him the kind of freedom that most tweens dream about. The most refreshing thing about this novel was how I didn't have to worry about it the kids have their big secret but it's a fun secret, a secret of parks and picnics and skating down the halls of the National Gallery. It's a secret that hurts no one and readers are allowed to simply enjoy how the friendships unfold and the revelations are made. The People of Pineapple Place is a perfect title for precocious younger readers who want a secret, but not something to worry about. --Colleen Mondor, Bookslut
